Wasim Akram and Misbah credits Suryakumar Yadav as the best middle order batsman in T20. The world’s best middle order batsman! Misbah from Panchmukh Akram in praise of Surya Kumar
#Lahore: The way India faced a batting disaster when they batted first against South Africa, it was doubtful whether the team would reach 100 runs. Former cricketers like Wasim Akram, Misbah-ul-Haq were surprised to see how Surya Kumar Yadav stood alone in the rubble and fought back despite the big stars returning.
Surya Kumar has been called the best middle order batsman in the world by two former Pak stars. Suryakumar Yadav scored 68 runs off just 40 balls with 6 fours and three sixes against South Africa. Former Pakistan captain and star batsman Misbah-ul-Haq was ecstatic with Surya’s performance.
He said on Pakistan TV channel that Suryakumar Yadav’s T20 performance is at a level where it is difficult to find fault in his game. Surya Mana has developed a strategy that makes it difficult for bowlers to find the right length. Because if the bowlers bowl a full length ball, the shot will go over the covers and again if the bowlers bowl a short ball, the ball will go over the covers. Third man or point.
Former star all-rounder and swing Sultan Wasim Akram said Suryakumar Yadav plays in such a style that as a bowler you never know where to find the loopholes to dominate him. He plays different types of shots. Scores runs in all areas. He is a great composer. He has so many shots, but I haven’t seen him rush.
When Akram was associated with the Kolkata Knight Riders team in the past, Surya Kumar was in that team. He had talent then, but not so many innovative shots. Wasim feels that Surya Kumar does not get the benefit that Babar and Rizwan get from playing the power play. Had he got that his number of runs would have been more. Former Pak cricketers say that such batsmanship is easy to see.
